trigger back/forward event from browser

I want to hook the "back" event or "forward" event from a browser page.
How can I trigger these events to my asp.net page?

If you mean "handle" the events (as in: react to button press),
you can't. The browser uses the back and forward buttons to move
inside it's cache (mainly). No special command is sent to the server, so
there is no event to handle there.

If you want the browser to react as if the back button has been pressed,
you will need javascript: history.back() or history.go(-1)

Is there any way to disable the client browser "Back" and "Forward" buttons while on my site? Or how would I go about knowing that a page hit is caused by a back/forward navigation? I have discovered that my web app is definately NOT Back/Forward safe. It's really messing with my SQL data bigtime. Thanks.
